ELECTION 2008 I SAFETY HARBOR



HARBOR



COMMISH



BLASTED



FOR ETHICS

Candidates also accuse
city commission of voting
against residents' wishes


By DOUGLAS E. JESSMER
The Pinellas News
SAFETY HARBOR Three
of four Safety Harbor city com-
mission candidates agree on one
thing that the city commission
isn't listening to residents before
making decisions.
One challenger's "stone-cold"
campaign promises at the end of
Tuesday night's candidates forum
insinuated the lone incumbent up
for re-election may have been un-
ethical.
Incumbent Commissioner Na-
dine Nickeson faces a challenge


for her seat Jan. 29 from pharma-
cist Mark Taylor. The other seat
up for grabs is an open seat,
sought by consultant Nina Ban-
doni and financial advisor Robin
Fornino.
Mayor Andy Steingold and
Commissioner-elect Mary
Lynda Williams were unopposed
and, as a result, automatically
elected.
"The residents are correct no
one is listening," Taylor said.
Fornino agreed, adding that "it
comes back to listening."

Course takes the mystery out of governing


By DOUGLAS E. JESSMER
The Pinellas News
ST. PETERSBURG Running Pinellas
County's government doesn't take a crystal
ball or unwieldy flow charts.
And if you're one of the 25 students of
Pinellas Citizen University, you'll see for
yourself.
For nearly two decades, course partici-
pants have learned from elected officials
and county employees what the inner work-
ings of government are. PCU coordinator
Len Ciecieznski said that after the course,


they grow to appreciate just how much the
county's government does.
"They do get to talk to the top dogs in
county government," he said. "They're im-
pressed with the professionalism of the peo-
ple they meet."
Marcia Dahlman, who attended in 2006,
said, "PCU was a peek into how everything
that I take for granted, the beaches, the
parks, emergency services, gets to my door."
Participants learn how commissioners
assemble the county's $1.9 million budget.


How to get involved
WHEN: The first session is April 3,
and classes meet 6:30-9:30 Thursday
evenings, though there is a Saturday
morning class May 31. Graduation is
June 5.

Remembering




the dream


In August 1963, the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.

stood at the Lincoln Memorial and said...


am happy to join with you today in
what will go down in history as the
greatest demonstration for freedom
in the history of our nation.
Five-score years ago, a great Amer-
ican, in whose symbolic shadow we
stand today, signed the Emancipation
Proclamation. This momentous decree
came as a great beacon light of hope to
millions of negro slaves who had been
seared in the flames of withering injus-
tice. It came as a joyous daybreak to
end the long night of their captivity.
But 100 years later, the negro still
is not free. One hundred years later, the
life of the negro is still sadly crippled
by the manacles of segregation and the
chains of discrimination. One hundred
years later, the negro lives on a lonely
island of poverty in the midst of a vast
ocean of material prosperity. One hun-
dred years later, the negro is still lan-
guishing in the comers of American so-
ciety and finds himself an exile in his
own land. So we have come here today
to dramatize a shameful condition.
In a sense, we have come to our
nation's capital to cash a check. When
the architects of our republic wrote the
magnificent words of the Constitution
and the Declaration of Independence,
they were signing a promissory note to
which every American was to fall heir.
This note was a promise that all men,
yes, black men as well as white men,
would be guaranteed the unalienable
rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of
happiness.
It is obvious today that America
has defaulted on this promissory note
insofar as her citizens of color are con-
cerned. Instead of honoring this sacred
obligation, America has given the negro
people a bad check, a check which has
come back marked "insufficient funds."
But we refuse to believe that the bank
of justice is bankrupt. We refuse to be-
lieve that there are insufficient funds in
the great vaults of opportunity of this
nation. So we have come to cash this
check a check that will give us upon
demand the riches of freedom and the
security of justice. We have also come
to this hallowed spot to remind America
of the fierce urgency of now. This is no
time to engage in the luxury of cooling
off or to take the tranquilizing drug of
gradualism. Now is the time to make
real the promises of democracy. Now is
the time to rise from the dark and deso-
late valley of segregation to the sunlit
path of racial justice. Now is the time to
lift our nation from the quick sands of
racial injustice to the solid rock of
brotherhood. Now is the time to make
justice a reality for all of God's chil-
dren.
It would be fatal for the nation to
overlook the urgency of the moment.
This sweltering summer of the negro's
legitimate discontent will not pass until
there is an invigorating autumn of free-
dom and equality. 1963 is not an end,
but a beginning. Those who hope that
the negro needed to blow off steam and

candlelight vigil, beginning

year's vigil is "Reflections of the
Man: A Call to Non-violence and
Peace," offering the opportunity
to remember King, his courage
and his vision and hope for the
nation and the world; as well as
the opportunity for participants to
make a personal commitment to
let their thoughts, words and
actions boldly represent that
which is right.

will now be content will have a rude
awakening if the nation returns to busi-
ness as usual. There will be neither rest
nor tranquility in America until the ne-
gro is granted his citizenship rights. The
whirlwinds of revolt will continue to
shake the foundations of our nation un-
til the bright day of justice emerges.
But there is something that I must
say to my people who stand on the
warm threshold which leads into the
palace of justice. In the process of gain-
ing our rightful place we must not be
guilty of wrongful deeds. Let us not
seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by
drinking from the cup of bitterness and
hatred.


"We must forever
conduct our struggle
on the high plane of
dignity and discipline."


We must forever conduct our strug-
gle on the high plane of dignity and dis-
cipline. We must not allow our creative
protest to degenerate into physical vio-
lence. Again and again we must rise to
the majestic heights of meeting physical
force with soul force. The marvelous
new militancy which has engulfed the
negro community must not lead us to a
distrust of all white people, for many of
our white brothers, as evidenced by
their presence here today, have come to
realize that their destiny is tied up with
our destiny. They have come to realize
that their freedom is inextricably bound


to our freedom. We cannot walk alone.
As we walk, we must make the
pledge that we shall always march
ahead. We cannot turn back. There are
those who are asking the devotees of
civil rights, "When will you be satis-
fied?" We can never be satisfied as long
as the negro is the victim of the un-
speakable horrors of police brutality.
We can never be satisfied, as long as
our bodies, heavy with the fatigue of
travel, cannot gain lodging in the mo-
tels of the highways and the hotels of
the cities. We cannot be satisfied as
long as the negro's basic mobility is
from a smaller ghetto to a larger one.
We can never be satisfied as long as our
children are stripped of their selfhood
and robbed of their dignity by signs
stating "For Whites Only." We cannot
be satisfied as long as a negro in Mis-
sissippi cannot vote and a negro in New
York believes he has nothing for which
to vote. No, no, we are not satisfied,
and we will not be satisfied until justice
rolls down like waters and righteous-
ness like a mighty stream.
I am not unmindful that some of
you have come here out of great trials
and tribulations. Some of you have
come fresh from narrow jail cells. Some
of you have come from areas where
your quest for freedom left you battered
by the storms of persecution and stag-
gered by the winds of police brutality.
You have been the veterans of creative
suffering. Continue to work with the
faith that unearned suffering is redemp-
tive.
Go back to Mississippi, go back to
Alabama, go back to South Carolina, go
back to Georgia, go back to Louisiana,
go back to the slums and ghettos of our
northern cities, knowing that somehow
this situation can and will be changed.
Let us not wallow in the valley of de-
spair.
I say to you today, my friends, so
even though we face the difficulties of
today and tomorrow, I still have a
dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in
the American dream.
I have a dream that one day this na-
tion will rise up and live out the true
meaning of its creed: "We hold these
truths to be self-evident: that all men
are created equal."
I have a dream that one day on the
red hills of Georgia the sons of former
slaves and the sons of former slave
owners will be able to sit down together
at the table of brotherhood.
I have a dream that one day even
the state of Mississippi, a state swelter-
ing with the heat of injustice, sweltering
with the heat of oppression, will be
transformed into an oasis of freedom
and justice.
I have a dream that my four little
children will one day live in a nation
where they will not be judged by the
color of their skin but by the content of
their character.

Want the

authentic

item? Don't

we all....

Seems to me there's so

much plastic-banana,
good-time-rock-and-roll
tripe in the popular culture,
everyone wants to get under the
veneer and find substance.
We're tired of the glitz and
the showy stuff- give us some-
thing real, something meaning-
ful.
I'm thinking of this as I re-
member a story this past week
about how Miley Cyrus who
you may know better as Disney
Channel's "Hannah Montana," or
as the daughter of country singer
Billy Ray Cyrus of "Achy
Breaky Heart" fame used a
body double for a short time dur-
ing each concert on her recent
concert tour.
Cyrus apparently used the
body double during the last two
minutes of her first set, so she
could go backstage and prepare
for the second set, which she did
as herself, and not in her Hannah
character.
WHAT? No intermission?
Heaven forbid.
Of course, the screaming
kids whose parents bought ex-
tremely overpriced tickets from
brokers probably were too enthu-
siastic to know the difference.
But it underscores an issue Big
Entertainment hasn't quite fig-
ured out that we want true en-
tertainment, pure, unadulterated,
100-percent real.
My first thoughts were to
Ashlee Simpson, whose foul-up
on NBC's "Saturday Night Live"
torpedoed her career.
And then I dug back further
in the cobweb-infested comers
of my mind, back to when I was
a teen-ager, when the pseudo-
rasta duo Milli Vanilli was found
out they didn't even record
their own songs!
Simpson appeared on SNL
in October 2004, and did the
usual two songs. The first one
went off without a hitch, but she
missed her cues on the second
one, and her voice mysteriously
came out of her mouth without it
even moving, or without her in-
haling first. Either she's very,
very talented or she's... wait for
it... a FAKE!
Once she blew her cues, she
stood impotent before an interna-
tional television audience, then
danced a little jig and walked off
stage.
Her throat was screwed up
from acid reflux to the point
where she couldn't even speak.
That's why she had a voice track.
The backup band, incidentally,
was actually playing.
In the not-too-distant past, a
performer in that spot would
have cancelled or postponed her
appearance. What happened to
the truth? Guess it doesn't matter
if you can gloss it over with
style, but that's the way many
stars roll these days.
Before we leave Simpson,
let's remember that she per-
formed at the Orange Bowl half-
time show the following January,
and was booed through the entire
show. I saw it on TV and
laughed.
So Simpson's career ap-
peared shot. Supposedly, she'll
have an album out later this year,
and if it does well, it'll be a com-
mentary on Americans' short
memories.


Maybe there's hope for
Milli Vanilli after all.
In 1989, during a live per-
formance on MTV, the duo's
guide track to "Girl, You Know
It's True" skipped, revealing the
horrible truth they weren't ac-
tually singing at all, nor could
they. We all learned, girls, it
wasn 't true, ooh, ooh, ooh.

Dream come true


Clearwater resident wins contest to become first-time home buyer


CLEARWATER A Clear-
water resident wrote her way
into her first home, and she ac-
cepted a $10,000 check Thurs-
day in the first home purchase of
her life. It's a dream come true.
Elena "Elle" Borneman en-
tered the third annual "Own
Your First Home" essay contest
sponsored by Black Enterprise
magazine.
For the contest, she wrote a
poignant essay about what home
ownership means to her and her
sentiment earned her a $10,000
prize to go toward the purchase
of her first home.


Earl G. Graves Sr., the mag-
azine's founder and publisher,
presented Borneman with a
supersizedd check" at a special
ceremony at the new Borne-
man residence on Brigadoon
Drive.
Black Enterprise magazine is
a business-service publication
that provides 3.9 million readers
with information on entrepre-
neurship, careers and financial
management.
The "OwnYour First Home"
contest awards $10,000 to a
qualified first-time home buyer
to use toward the down payment


on a home. The goal of the con-
test is to inspire more black
Americans to pursue home own-
ership as their primary means of
building personal wealth.
While the number of black
Americans who own homes has
risen in recent years, there re-
mains a sizeable gap between
the percentage of black home-
owners and homeowners of
other racial groups.
Bomeman also qualified for
the city of Clearwater's home
buyers program. Both the city
and county have made afford-
able housing a priority and are


working to make the dream of
home ownership a reality
through various programs and
partnerships.
"We are proud to welcome
and recognize Ms. Elle Bome-
man as a Clearwater first-time
homebuyer," Clearwater Vice
Mayor John Doran said.
"Through her personal efforts,
supplemented by the Black En-
terprise 'Own Your First Home'
essay award and the City of
Clearwater's first-time Home
buyer's program, she has real-
ized this very important part of
the American Dream."


Course also explains county budgeting


CITIZENS I From Page 1

The county's chief budget of-
ficer addresses the group, then
splits the group into smaller
groups to put together the
budget their own way.
"It's not like the household
budget," Ciecieznski said. "It's a
real compromise situation."
Attendees set priorities and
work the numbers, then are
faced with a "wild card," like a
hurricane or budget windfall, he
said.
"They get very spirited,"
Ciecieznski added.
PCU takes citizens backstage
for various county functions.
They learn how the county man-
ages traffic flow across the
county, how it mitigates mos-
quitoes, how it responds in
emergencies, and how the crim-
inal justice system works.
Ciecieznski said many don't
understand about 75 percent of
the county's jail inmates are
people awaiting trial who can't
afford bail. He added that the
criminal justice system works a
lot different in real life than it
does on television.
Attendees also spend a ses-
sion at the county motor pool, to
learn how it cuts its fleet man-
agement costs.
While there aren't repeat at-

tendees, he said, "We have a lot
of people telling their friends."
"It's not 'us versus them,' it's
we," Ciecieznski said. "It is
government for the people, by
the people, of the people. It isn't
citizens versus their govern-
ment."
"Before taking these courses
and becoming familiar with the
dealings of Pinellas County, I
know that many people, as I did,
have commented about our
taxes increasing, and the county
is just wasting/spending our


money frivolously," said Helen
Giakoumus, a 2007 participant.
No%% that I see what our tax
money exactly does, I don't feel
as negative any longer to my
perceived high taxes. Bottom
line, the government is made up
of people, who are working to-
gether to better all of our lives."
There's a ripple effect,
Ciecieznski said, as some par-
ticipants wind up getting more
involved with county govern-
ment, while others become re-
sources in their neighborhoods.


"Pinellas Citizen University
gives us the knowledge that en-
ables us to be better citizens,"
said 2006 attendee Sid
Donoghue. "Some of us will be
more active voters. Some will
want to take a part in the opera-
tion of the government. Most
will have a greater appreciation
that if we want all the services
that those professionals provide,
we will have to pay for them.
We all have a stake in keeping
the county a nice place to work,
to play and to live."


What attendees have said


"One by one, we were given
the opportunity to listen to
presenters tell us how they
run this wonderful county
and why. And one by one, I
continued to be amazed by
all of their senses of a
higher calling. None of their
jobs was easy, and many
times they were thankless
as well. But what tied them
all together was that they all
had a certain look in their
eyes. They all thoroughly
believed in what they were
doing and were proud to
show the public they serve
how they do what they do. If
it had to be summed up, it
would be easy: Passion."
JASON HEIRONIMUS, 2006


"PCU activities have been
informative, entertaining and
appealed to a diverse
population. Our group had
an age range of
approximately 50 years with
varying backgrounds. Each
member found something of
interest from every session.

CLEARWATER Sally
Bishop is now the director of
Pinellas County's Emergency
Management Department.
Pinellas County Interim Ad-
ministrator Fred Marquis made
the appointment official on
Monday, Jan. 7. Bishop was ap-
pointed interim director after
former Emergency Manage-
ment Director Gary Vickers' fa-
tal traffic accident last Febru-
ary and, before her
appointment, served for nearly
two years as assistant director.
"I am humbled to have been
appointed," said Bishop. "I
couldn't have asked to work
with a better team of emergency


managers. To-
gether, we will
continue to
work together
to make Pinel-
las a better
prepared
Bishop county."
Bishop's
experience is a
culmination of more than two
decades of emergency planning
and disaster response and oper-
ations in the field. Bishop pre-
viously worked with Pinellas
County's Emergency Manage-
ment in 1986 and over the next
eight years worked numerous
storm, disaster and recovery ef-


forts, including: Storm of the
Century, 1993; Severe Weather
Incident, 1991; Tropical Storm
Keith, 1988; Hurricane Floyd,
1987; and Jones Chemical Fire,
1986.
She spearheaded the devel-
opment and refinement of nu-
merous county programs and
operations, including the Hurri-
cane Evacuation Implementa-
tion Guide, Special Needs
Evacuation Program and the
county's disaster recovery op-
erations.
Bishop is credited with the
co-creation of the county health
care agencies-attended hurri-
cane conference, Hurricanes


and Health Care, which pro-
vides critical training and in-
formation to county health
providers.
With 11 years of experience
at the Federal Emergency Man-
agement Agency, Bishop is
known for her strength and
first-hand knowledge in recov-
ery efforts.
Bishop supervises a staff of
seven emergency managers and
coordinates the county-wide
emergency planning efforts.
She works extensively with the
county's 24 municipalities, sur-
rounding counties and the
state's Division of Emergency
Management.

7:30 p.m.
The free concert will be in the

marches, and easy listening
dance tunes.
"We have some Glenn Miller,

POTTER


Potter's column

ELECTION I From Page 1

She said she seeks elected of-
fice because of the disconnect
between what residents want and
what the city commission pro-
vides.
As examples, Taylor said the
commission voted to resurface
Marshall Street East against the
wishes of the street's residents,
and that the Harbor Pointe proj-
ect, which included large condo-
miniums, was approved in 2003
by the council against residents'
input. In both votes, he pointed
out, Nickeson either voted with
the commission or seconded the
motion.
Nickeson, who's been a com-
missioner for much of the last
10 years, said the city responds
to residents in a timely manner,
though sometimes her messages
don't get to her fast enough.
"We have citizens to be
heard," she said.
Nickeson said the biggest
problem facing the city of about
17,000 residents is that residents
need to come together.
"We have the same vision. We
can't agree how to get there," she
said. "We have to realize that
we're in it together. 'I disagree
with you' doesn't mean your
opinion is not worthy."
In her closing statement,
Nickeson said it's easy to make
popular decisions, but decisions
that follow the law aren't as easy.
She also said the commission
needs stability, as a handful of
commissioners have governed


Taylor


over the last decade.
Taylor said that while Nicke-
son is running on experience and
stability, the board needs fresher
ideas, a long-term vision and a
perspective the commission
doesn't have.
He said that there are two
pledges he'd keep, "stone cold,"
and both were criticisms of Nick-
eson not to spend city money
on out-of-state trips that don't
benefit the city, and not to ex-
ploit citizens at the expense of
the city's library and museum.
Before the forum, attendees
were handed clippings from a
November 2006 news story re-
porting that one of Nickeson's
neighbors rewrote her will to
give 40 percent of her estate to
Nickeson and her husband.
Marie "Teddy" Mecca's original
will gave the city 50 percent of
her estate, but the rewritten will
cut the city's share to 20 percent,
dropped her relatives and left 40
percent to Nickeson.
Nickeson, who was Mecca's
caregiver in her final years, lost
her commission re-election bid
in March 2006, the week after
the story went public. Mecca
died in August 2005 at age 89.

The city's big public pro-

Fornino


Earlier in the forum, Nicke-
son referenced a trip she made to
New Orleans to a League of
Cities meeting, where she said
she learned about city recycling.
About 30 percent of Safety Har-
bor's residents use the city's re-
cycling program, she added.
"We're making money off our
recyclables," she said.


said, iucas different things to
different people, and it's a catch-
phrase."
She said 'going green' should
mean preserving the city's green
spaces, and that the city should
examine its own programs to en-
sure they're environmentally
friendly. The city, she said,
should also require and plant
more trees.
Fornino said she moved to
Safety Harbor "because this is
true Florida and this is old
Florida," with old-growth trees, a
small community and a neigh-
borhood focus. While she wants
to see the city grow, she wants to
do it "in a fashion that reflects
our uniqueness."

agree how to get there. We have to realize
that we're in it together. 'I disagree

Taylor said the city should ex-
pand its recycling program, as
well as do more community
beautification.
"Absolutely, it's important to
be a green community," he said.
Bandoni agreed, and added
it's crucial for households to be-
come more environmentally re-
sponsible.
"The term 'green,'" Fornino


Part of the problem Fomino
said she sees with downtown de-
velopment is that the city says it
welcomes business, but words
and actions don't always match.
Bandoni said she'd work to
ensure an appropriate mix of
businesses, and that new build-
ings would stay in character with
the rest of the community. Ban-
doni said the city's recent vi-


the Cuarteto Jos6 White came into
existence and began rehearsing
and building repertoire; the quar-
tet's formal debut was during the
1997-98 season when it was fea-
tured in a concert at the notable
Chamber Music Festival, San
Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato,


sioning sessions have produced
"great ideas," there are concerns
about development, and new busi-
nesses need to be mindful of the
city's vision.
Taylor said he would work
with downtown businesses and the
city's chamber of commerce to
proceed with a development plan
that includes business owners' fo-
cuses and visions. He also said the
downtown needs to be promoted
more.
"We need to bring some busi-
ness here to bring people here, to
bring dollars here," he added.
Nickeson said she would con-
tinue with downtown develop-
ment, which has brought more
than 160 jobs to the downtown
area since she was first elected to
council in 1997.
Asked whether the candidates
would change the city's zoning or
building codes, Taylor said he
would take a "hard look" at the
codes and variances, of which 80
percent have been approved in re-
cent years.
Bandoni said the codes are ef-
fective now, though there are times
when variances are needed.
"I don't have a plan to make
any sweeping changes of that
sort," she said.
Nickeson said the zoning is
what makes Safety Harbor what it
is, and that changes should only be
made after careful consideration.
Fortino said she'd examine re-
cent zoning changes to see if they
matched citizens' desires, not just
the commission or vested inter-
ests.

"We get back to them within
24 hours with an answer to the
question and a resolution to the
problem," he said.
Under Hibbard, the city
launched C kainaici Veterans
Appreciation Day Inc. to or-
ganize a veterans appreciation
event at Clearwater High
School. This year's event in-
cluded the U.S. Marine Corps
Silent Drill Platoon, the U.S.
Special Operations Command
Parachute Team and a line of
colors from area military and
cadet organizations.
Hibbard still wants to see a
senior center built in the city,
but in the meantime, his admin-
istration hired a staff position
to oversee aging programs.
Transportation for the eld-
erly is a big issue, he said, and
he hopes a partnership with the
region's transportation authority
will foster improvement.
But transportation will be a
future issue for everyone across
the region, he said. The mayor
is a member of the Tampa Bay
Area Regional Transit Author-
ity.
"I think the Tampa Bay area
getting regional transit is a ne-
cessity," he added.
Work on the 118th Street
Connector between Interstate


275 and U.S. 19 will continue,
as well as a push to continue
streamlining U.S. 19 two
bridges to eliminate stop lights
along the highway are in the
works, though Hibbard said
state transportation authorities
are angling to redesign the En-
terprise Road interchange,
south of Countryside Mall, by
cutting off traffic across U.S.
19 altogether.
Hibbard launched a wellness
program for city employees, as
well as a "Healthy Choice"
newsletter. Partnerships with
Morton Plant Hospital, Pinel-
las County Schools and the
YMCA have produced a well-
ness program in the city's 22
elementary schools, as well as
the "Mayor's Move It Move It
Challenge."

Looking ahead
"I think the next three years
will be far different," he said,
adding that state-imposed
budget constraints will make
new initiatives difficult.
But bringing the city's di-
verse neighborhoods together
to start a dialogue over priori-
ties will be critical.
"There's just a lot of differ-
ent groups, and so trying to
make the budget reductions eq-
uitable will be very important,"
he said.

I have a dream today.
I have a dream that one
day, down in Alabama, with its
vicious racists, with its gover-
nor having his lips dripping
with the words of interposition
and nullification; one day right
there in Alabama, little black
boys and black girls will be
able to join hands with little
white boys and white girls as
sisters and brothers.
I have a dream today.
I have a dream that one day
every valley shall be exalted,
every hill and mountain shall be
made low, the rough places will
be made plain, and the crooked
places will be made straight,
and the glory of the Lord shall
be revealed, and all flesh shall
see it together.
This is our hope. This is
the faith that I go back to the
South with. With this faith we
will be able to hew out of the
mountain of despair a stone of
hope. With this faith we will be
able to transform the jangling
discords of our nation into a
beautiful symphony of brother-
hood. With this faith we will be
able to work together, to pray
together, to struggle together, to
go to jail together, to stand up
for freedom together, knowing
that we will be free one day.
This will be the day when
all of God's children will be
able to sing with a new mean-
ing, "My country, 'tis of thee,
sweet land of liberty, of thee I


FAKES I From Page 3

Making matters worse, we
learned they didn't sing a note
on their own albums. The vo-
cals were recorded by several
singers who "lacked a mar-
ketable image." Again, style
over substance. The actual
singers were never credited on
the album.
Four days after they were
found out, the Grammy they
were given in 1990 was
yanked. Class-action suits were
filed in Cleveland and Chicago
against the group and Arista
Records, in which consumers
prevailed.
Where are they now? Rob
Pilatus turned to a life of crime
and died in 1998 in a German
hotel room. Fab Morvan real-
ized some success as a Los An-
geles radio DJ and recording
artist... using his own voice.
As for Miley Cyrus, she


TALLAHASSEE The
Florida Lottery announced that
four additional $1 million Holi-
day Millionaire Raffle winners
have come forward to claim
their prizes.
These players were among
the 12 to win $1 million each.
Twenty-five Holiday Mil-

$100,000 and 200 players won

sing. Land where my fathers
died, land of the pilgrim's
pride, from every mountainside,
let freedom ring."
And if America is to be a
great nation this must become
true. So let freedom ring from
the prodigious hilltops of New
Hampshire. Let freedom ring
from the mighty mountains of
New York. Let freedom ring
from the heightening Alleghe-
nies of Pennsylvania!
Let freedom ring from the
snowcapped Rockies of Col-
orado!
Let freedom ring from the
curvaceous slopes of Califor-
nia!
But not only that; let free-
dom ring from Stone Mountain
of Georgia!
Let freedom ring from
Lookout Mountain of Ten-
nessee!
Let freedom ring from
every hill and molehill of Mis-
sissippi. From every mountain-
side, let freedom ring.
And when this happens,
when we allow freedom to ring,
when we let it ring from every
village and every hamlet, from
every state and every city, we
will be able to speed up that
day when all of God's children,
black men and white men, Jews
and Gentiles, Protestants and
Catholics, will be able to join
hands and sing in the words of
the old negro spiritual, "Free at
last! free at last! thank God
Almighty, we are free at last!"


does seem like the genuine ar-
ticle. Her dad seems sincere in
TV interviews. So I'm more
likely to blame her handlers at
Disney for underestimating the
fans. That's a problem the me-
dia, whether it's Big Radio, tel-
evision, record companies or
even newspapers, hasn't fig-
ured out that the consumer is
smarter than they're given
credit for sometimes.
Hasn't anyone learned -
when you're entertaining, the
people come to see you, and
only you? Hope Miley and
Billy Ray don't make that mis-
take again, lest "my achy,
break heart blow up and kill
this man, oooooh."
